LET US.HAVE THE BENEFIT.
We are informed through a newspaper article appearing in the Daily Pica
!iur,. that considerable happiness was occasioned in Algiers upon receipt of a
'clegram addressed to Peter S. Iawton from Congressman Estopinal. in which
the ('ongressman stated that the Canal Commission Is considering two routes
to New Orleans -Harvey's Canal, and the Outfall Drainage Canal.
We agree with the Pit~ayunc that this news occasions considerable happi
ness. for, having practically lost the Naval Station. and our Immigration Sta
Iion not yet begun. with the T. & P. Shops being mnoved away, and less work
heing given our by the Southern Pacific, we have arrived at a point where wc
miust have sor.cthing on this side of the River to give employment to our idle
M.r. Laa ton is quoted in the P'iayune. as follows:
"In telling of the hopes of the Algiers Imllprovement Association. which has
tak(n a promtjinientt part in tile fight to have the (canal extended through tile out
fall (.tinal. M.r. Lawton said that the citizens of Algiers are hopeful that their
town will lie successful in its fight. lie explainted that it the outfall canal be
us-'d only about a toile of dredging would be required to connect it with the
.ilssissijji Ri\iver, and that if the canal be dug on a line with its present bed
that it would "tap" tihe river at a In)int almlost opposite to the Amnerican Sugar
ittlinery ani the Frisco Slip."
lMr. Lawton exl ained that lie is led to believe that the river front in the
vi-,inity of the Frisco docks is destined to be( oite the trade cetlter of t ie city
so far as shtlipping is conlcernled.
From M.tr. Lawtont's interview we are led to believe M.1r. Lawton is advocat
ing that the (utll inito tihe River of the canal should be at a point opposite the
iF'risco Slips. which is about three miles down the Coast on this side of the
River. We fa:l to see how this will he of benefit to Algiers. We have no
doubt but that the Frisco docks is destined to become thle trade center of the
city. so far as shipping is concerned. but we, as Algeri ties, are looking after
oulr own interests, antid as we understood this moventent was a movement of the
Algiers Inimprovement Association, we should certainly look after the interests
of the l)isttict in which we live. and are working for. We want the Outfall
Drainage ('anal's terminus to be in Algiers, where the hundreds of luggers
will lay up, so that we may have trade with the men who man them. so that
we may suilly their provisions, stores, equipment. sell them boats, and place
thetm in a position where they may reach our largest market in the shortest t
length of time. Advocating the terminus of the Outfall Drainage Canal at a
point opposite the Frisco Slips is little better than the Hlarvey's Canal as a
terminus. One is about as near to the French Market as the other. What we
want, and what we should ask for, is the continuation of the Canal from its 1
present terminus on a direct line to the River along Whitney Avenue. where.
years ago, a natural waterway existed. In our fight for what we hardly expect I
:o get, let us as least be conservative.
In explaining his views on the subject. Mr. Lawton stated yesterday that
he reason he had advocated the terminus to be located down the river opposite
he Frisco Slips was that he was reliably Informed that on account of the big
eddy in the vicinity of Whitney avenue, it would be impossible to place locks t
it that point.

a, at Reasons Why Uncle Sam Shoula Use
n to the Algiers Outfall Canal, as
the Framed by Mr. P. 8. Lawton and
the Forwarded to General Estopinal at
fol- Washington, by the Special Com
,rth- mittee of the Algiers Improvement
C. Association, to Be Submitted to the
Ed- Board of Army Engineers, Who Are
bel, Now Closing Their Report on This
rice Very Important Matter.
Val- First. Because, in the opinion of
tgh. many practical river men who have
SJI given thought to present and pros
ters pective conditions affecting the hand
her, ling of the water commerce of the
New Orleans harbor, the advent of the
a in larger ocean vessels which the new
ars. pass will admit into the river will ul
old timately concentrate all loading and
Wil- unloading facilities in that stretch of
St. the river below the Algiers point for
clad many and various reasons, principal
It among which is the obvious danger of
lett several such vessels meeting at this
ge's acute turn in the river, where all are
compelled to keep to the middle of
end the stream to avoid a dangerout eddy I
row on either side, as well as because of I
,ws the impracticability of towing such
sed vessels up or down stream around
ain said point (during the high-water a
3od period at least) to possibly one or more t
other berths whereat to complete car- c
go-which fact should suggest that the
river terminal of this new and import- n
4, ant waterway should be located within (
said new wharfage district below said 1
Algiers point, wheer said Algiers out- a
ref fall canal would locate it. j1
- Second. Because there are better n
ith- foundations for locks at the point lI
, where said Algiers outfall canal would d
ex- reach the river if projected in a P
straight line from its present location, tl
my- than at any other place in the New if
in Orleans harbor, as may be shown by ci
the several reports of the McCann
ey and Bunce Boards in the matter of
the location of the New Orleans Na
val Station, which is in this immedi.
ol- ate vicinity and which said eminent
government experts located in this si
er, reach of the river and on the shore, hi
na because of its being "behind" said Al. to
r- giers Point, on a strainght and perma.- A
nent shore line, free from eddies and at
er the stronger current which said Al- B
O. giers Point directs against the oppo. gr
site shore. on
is- Third. Because it will be in this
is, lower reach of the harbor that the in,
C.northern branch of the inter-coastal ins
A. canal will cross from Lake Borgne into fol
ýt. the Mississippi river on the opposite gr
side, making it desirable that said in. ray
tercoastal canal should "cross" the
river on as nearly a straight line as
possible, to the great advantage of a vii
probably large number of compara
d tively trail craft which will regular
W ly use said inland waterway and which
will naturally want to get back into
said canal with as little river travel as ml
possible for obvious reasons; and for
further reason that the warehouse sys
temrn which will follow and form part
of the lighterage system which the
advent of this new transportation sye
teom will automatically fnaugurate in
thi New Osleans harbor, should also
CA- be concentrated as much as possible
within easy and speedy reach of the
barges entering the river from either
branch of said intercoastal canal.
Use Fourth. Because said Algiers out
fall canal has a right of way of 200
as feet wide, extending from Bayou Bara
and taria, in a straight line, to within one
I at and one-half miles of the river, as
om. stated, in the center of which strip
lent said canal has been excavated ten feet k
deep and fifty feet wide, which valu- 1
the able waterway may be secured by the
Are United States government from the t
his city of New Orleans, probably gratis, s
under certain conditions, and because t
the right of way, also on a straight e
line, throughout the other one and
of one-half miles mentioned, may be se- o
ive cured from the owners, at a nominal t
os- cost, said land being unimproved and d
nd- comparatively cheap; and further- i
the more, because at the point where said n
the local canal would reaoh the river, the t
ew banks of the river, both below and a
ul- above said terminal, are unincum- t
nd bered at the present time, by any o
of buildings or wharves or any other ob- f'
for structions to their detriment as sites
pal for the prospective necessary ware
of houses mentioned.
his As coroborative of the prediction
tre that the heavy commerce of the port
of will sooner or later be handled in this
idy lower section of the harbor, we need
of but point to the large enterprises al
ich ready located there, prominent among P
nd which is the Frisco terminal, costing
ter some $7,000,000, diagonally across from
)re these proposed locks; the big Ameri.
ar- can sugar refinery, one of the largest
he In the world, employing nearly _,000
rt- men, directly across; the extensive
in Chalmette Docks, etc., etc. The re- t
dd finery people abandoned a large plant
ut. which they had operated for years, fr
Just above said Algiers Point, for the
er new site, where the Cuban sugar ships
nt land under their own steam night or
Id day at their extensive wharves. An im- cc

n, the Intercoastal canal project will ver
